    I worked at Aflac

    Pros

    Lots of potential bonus and great incentives.

    Cons

    Don't know about other offices, but mine was toxic and for a second, i thought i was back in high school. You have to really sell if you want to make the potential earnings they "promise."

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Aflac full-time

    Pros

    Can schedule your own time. Generally Nice people to work with. Nice job if you REALLY love sales and a challenge. If it goes good at first and IF you do meet with a few business owners that is willing to let you set up a group, it can be rewarding cause of the work life balance and pay is quick.

    Cons

    Need a base to start off. Better training. Once you go through your circle of family and friends its very hard. Make sure you have enough money in bank for a few months cause normally takes awhile to get going. Not for most people. All about who you know(business owners) to get the business groups started. All focused on getting just the business groups in order to get good pay. Not direct sales. Set up to play the bonus game. . Has a pyramid scheme feel to it. Definetly over saturated market.

    Pros

    Make your own hours. Gained a lot of sales experience.

    Cons

    Ethics do not matter. Only numbers. You will not make what the recruiter says. You are on the hook to pay for everything and will make a small amount. Take a different job!

    Current Contractor - AFLAC Field Sales Agent in Grand Rapids, MI

    I have been working at Aflac for more than 10 years

    Pros

    International recognition, leader/largest provider of voluntary supplemental health benefits, recognized by Ethisphere Magazine as one of the world's moth ethical companies, independent business opportunity, regional and state training and coaching from field sales district and regional managers, team interdependence can benefit those who don't quite make their personal sales goal for a given incentive by allowing them to share in the reward for their district or region. National incentives for trips and annual Convention. Products help people, fastest claims paying in the industry. Worthy charitable contributions and community involvement.

    Cons

    High agent turnover, particularly new(er) agents due to no salary nor agent financing to upstart career ... this lends itself to a less quality pool of candidates. Commissions are typically lower than competitors', particularly in the residual stream. Too many businesses complaining of how many times they've been called upon by agents (adherence to Do Not Call List is helping), While having a good time, receiving recognition, and camaraderie is certainly noteworthy, sales events typically are way too much rah-rah and drinking the Aflac kool-aid ... and not enough emphasis on receiving mentoring from truly successful and respected veteran agents. Training has gotten better with break-out sessions, corporate/national input, and with respect to brokers and how an agent can partner with them. However, the workload and time constraints to bring on enough accounts and/or direct clients in order to create enough income, particularly in the earlier months and years just to survive, let alone thrive, can be daunting to say the least.
